In the early hours of today, Nokia officially took wraps off a yet another affordable smartphone. The device is dubbed as Nokia X7 – it’s known as the 7.1 Plus in China.
The device is equipped with a 6.8″ Pure Display notched screen with 1080p+ pixel resolution. It supports for DCI-P3, SDR to HDR video conversion, and has 500 nits brightness.
Under the hood, there resides a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset. Memory section for this device includes 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. Android 8.1 Oreo comes pre-installed out of the box – and the company also promises to soon roll out the Pie update.
Camera section for this device includes a dual-rear Zeiss camera setup. The primary lens has the 12MP Sony IMX363 sensor with 1.4µm pixels, a bright f/1.8 aperture and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), EIS is available too. With these pixels, you’d be able to capture almost twice as much light as 1.0µm pixels and feature Dual Pixel autofocus to boot.
The secondary camera is the 13MP (f/2.4 fixes focus) sensor. For selfie lovers, the Nokia has embedded a 20MP sensor which can do pixel binning in the dark, to help the 0.9µm pixels perform better.
This new S710 chipset has the capability to create a bokeh effect thanks to the power of AI. No support for wireless charging, although the rear panel of the device is made of glass.
To keep the lights of the device on the company has embedded a 3,500mAh of the battery. Thanks to the 18W fast charger, you will be able to charge 50 percent in just 30 minutes. Nice to see that the company has kept the 3.5 mm headphone jack on the board.
This is a dual-SIM phone with a hybrid slot in case you need more storage. VoLTE is supported out of the box.
Pre-order of the device has already begun – you can find more about it on JD.com. There will be four color options to choose from including the Dark Blue, Night Red, Magic Night Silver and Night Black. But currently, only the first two are available.
